Birmingham Children’s Partnership Covid-19 Community Grants

The Birmingham Children’s Partnership has developed a new locality approach to supporting families in need across the city as part of the response to the Covid-19 crisis.

As part of this development a community grants scheme is currently in place to support locality working, which Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise organisations can apply for, up to a maximum of £10,000.

Support is available through Birmingham Community Matters for community groups to help them put together applications for this grant. It is important that any applications reflect a need in the local community, and that projects work with all members of that community.

Applications are sought from organisations wishing to work with the local partnerships and copies of the grant guidance and application form are available from the following website: https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/Covid19CYPF

Please read the grant guidance carefully and be aware that the application asks for you indicate which locality (not localities) you wish to work in.

The more that you can demonstrate that you have met the criteria outlined in the guidance notes, and the more detail that you provide in the application on how the grant will be spent and the impact you feel it will make, the greater the likelihood of the application being approved.

 

We would ask you to consider how you can contribute to supporting families in need and assist the local partnership.

If you feel that you can make a real contribution then please make contact with the respective Voluntary Sector Locality lead in the locality you wish to work.
